We are happy to share with you the report from the 7-day Autumn school that AgroecologyNow co-convened at Monkton Wyld Court in Dorset, UK in October 2022.
The school was an attempt to highlight the importance of the diversity of knowledges that exists in territorial food systems. Transition processes towards more sustainable and just food systems affect everybody – even if in highly uneven ways – and for that reason we believe that all perspectives are needed to understand, facilitate and effect them with a particular attention on the most marginalised voices. Moreover, how we view ‘transitions’, ‘territories’ or even ‘agroecology’ will be different depending on who we are and where we are coming from.
With this in mind the school explored multiple methods and tools that can support agroecological transitions at multiple scales and which have potential to transcend the subordination of nature and of people along intersectional lines of race, class, caste, disability/ability, sexuality, and gender.

The Autumn school was organised as part of the EU-funded ATTER-project on agroecological transitions for territorial food systems.
